Apartment 914

Agitate
the anarchy,
transparency’s
enemy
number one.

Blood seeping down sewer
grates knows
no Charter or
rights.

Here,

freedom of speech is
cut short with
switchblades.

Sirens from the
parkway on
collision
courses
with funeral arrangements for
the ninth floor’s
eastern block.

FAMILY OF FOUR CAUGHT IN THE CROSSFIRE-

READ ALL ABOUT
the horror
here in the column next to the American
Dream.

They found the door just hanging
off the hinges,

one-way ticket to
hell before your eyes, knowing two bright-eyed
youngsters are
casualties

to pissing
contests over whose
bandanna colours jive with
blood riches most

while blue jackets ransacked
apartments three
floors below belonging
to college
kids smoking
dope.

If only they
weren’t so scared of
elevator
rides,
the moral high
ground would still
be
breathing.
